Marceline Budza

Hope for Congo

Marceline Budza is empowering women in the Democratic Republic of Congo to stand as equal, confident, and capable women in coffee. At three years of age, Marceline’s parents would bring her a cup of coffee to wake up each day. Like most Congolese, coffee was prepared in the artisanal way: roasted in pans and ground in a pestle. Back then, Marceline saw coffee only as “black and a little bitter”. These days, it’s her profession. Marceline wakes up each morning glorifying God. She drinks a cup of coffee after taking care of her husband and son, goes to work in the office or coffee fields, and continues to drink a cup of coffee every two hours.
